Placebo Announce 20th-Anniversary World Tour

Published on

20 Years Of Placebo Tour Poster

Twenty years after the release of their landmark self-titled debut album, Placebo have announced a world tour celebrating two decades of being at the forefront of alt.rock innovation. Starting in Denmark on 13 October and running through to 16 December, tickets for the 20 Years Of Placebo World Tour will go on sale via Ticketmaster and www.aplaceforustodream.com. Fans will be given a special 48-hour pre-sale window, starting 9am on 16 March, with tickets going on general sale at 9am on Friday 18 March.

Underlining Placebo’s continual evolution, a series of 20 different posters are being released in each city that they perform in, amounting to a stunning visual history of the ever-changing group over their 20-year career. The setlists, too, promise to span the group’s entire history, with Brian Molko alluding to “songs in the set that I’ve sworn never to play again”.

“This tour is very much for the fans and a chance for us to revisit a lot of our early material,” he says. “I think it’s time that we purposefully acknowledged what a lot of Placebo fans want to hear.”

Shows to be played in 2017 will be revealed at a later date. The first batch of 20th-anniversary tour dates are:
